Microblading FAQ

The Answers You Need

What is Microblading?

Microblading is a manual form of cosmetic tattooing. A blade is used to implant pigment under the top lay of skin to create hairlike strokes.  It's a semi-permenant procedure unlike regular cosmetic tattooing and appears very natural to the eye. It can last from 6-9 months!

Are you a candidate for Microblading?

You are NOT a candidate for Microblading if you have any of the following:

  • History of hemophilia (bleeding)

  • History of skin diseases, skin lesions or skin sensitivities to soap, disinfectants, etc.

  • History of epilepsy, seizures, fainting or narcolepsy

  • Immune disorders

  • Scarring (keloid)

  • Someone with severely oily skin. ( Pigment will look more solid than like hair strokes and may not last as long)

  • Diabetes type 1 0r 2 ( Prone to slow healing and infection, color may not retain well)

  • Have Thyroid/graves disease ( Medication may cause pigment to not retain properly)

  • If you are pregnant or nursing.

What are the pre-treatment precautions?

  • Discontinue Botox, Filler, and/or Dysport one month before Microblading appointments.​

  • Waxing should be done 3 days prior to the procedure or artist can shape them the day of your appointment. 

  • Discontinue Retin A 3 days prior and 1 week after your procedure.

  • If eyebrows are normally dyed do not do so within 48 hours prior to this procedure. Wait one month after the eyebrow procedure before dying brows. 

  • Refrain from consuming aspirin or ibuprofen 24 hrs prior to and after your procedure.

  • No consumption of alcohol at least 48 hours before your appointment.

How long will the procedure take?

The first full microblading session will take about 2 hours. Within these two hours, you will not be bladed the whole time. Numbing and mapping out the brows takes up the bulk of the time. The touch up session, which should be done 6-8 weeks after the initial session, takes about 1 hour.

How often do I need to come back to refresh my eyebrows?

Everyones skin retains the pigment differently. I like my clients to come for a "Color Boost" at least every 8-12 months.

What are the After Care instructions?

For 7-14 days following application of permanent cosmetics: *Typical healing time varies on a person by person basis. An average of 7-14 days is needed for treated area to completely heal. 

  • Properly cleaning the treated area is essential for retaining pigment and preventing infection. If treated area is not continuously cleaned dead skin will build up, producing hard scabs causing rapid pigment loss. 

  • Before cleansing thoroughly wash and dry hands. Use fingertips to gently clean treated area twice a day with a soft anti-bacterial soap. *(Recommended Cleansers: Cetaphil, Johnson & Johnson’s baby wash, Dial Foaming Anti-Bacterial soap). 

  • After you have gently cleansed the intradermal cosmetic area with a mild antibacterial soap or coconut oil, you may rinse with water and lightly pat the area dry. 

  • Do not rub or pick at the epithelial crust; allow dead skin to flake off naturally. Absolutely no scrubbing, exfoliates, cleansing creams, or harsh chemicals

  •  Apply A&D ointment, healing balm, or coconut oil sparingly twice DAILY after cleaning until the procedure area has healed. Use a clean cotton swab to carefully blot ointment; do not use your fingertips. 

  • Do not expose treated area to water pressure in the shower. DO NOT clean treated area during or directly after bathing. Heat from water or steam helps to relax and cleanse pores making skin prone to pigment loss. Wait at least an hour and a half after bathing to clean treated area or clean before bathing. 

  • Do not soak treated area in bath, swimming pool or hot tub. Do not swim in fresh, salt or chlorinated pool water. Refrain from spray tans, tanning beds, and high-impact activities for two weeks or until completely healed. If high-impact activities cannot be avoided use a sweat band to absorb perspiration. 

  • Do not expose treated area to direct sunlight. 

  • Facial sun block may be used after the procedure area has completely healed to prevent future fading of pigment color. (*Only for those frequently exposed to the sun) 

  • Avoid using sponges and makeup brushes while healing. If necessary, use clean fingertips to apply makeup, however, applying makeup to unhealed skin is not advised or recommended. 

  • Avoid sleeping on treated area while healing. If it is uncomfortable or difficult to refrain from sleeping on the area, use the Tegaderm Film. *Tegaderm film can be found at most drug stores in the band-aid aisle. 

If you are a blood donor, do not donate for 1 year following your procedure. (American Red Cross guidelines)
